Recently named Las Vegas Review-Journal's 2013 pick for best beauty salon, Pico Madama Beauty & Hair Health Salon emphasizes the importance of healthy, beautiful hair. The experienced hair consultants and stylists don’t settle with a big-picture view of beauty. Using a BeautyScope digital microscope that magnifies the scalp and strands of hair up to 200 times, they diagnose damaged locks, propose styling or treatment plans, and ensure microscopic civilizations aren’t bulldozing their hair forests. From there, stylists may implement hair-health plans including scalp facials with exfoliation that uses botanical products, special brushes, and three massage techniques. They also zoom out from their close-up views to redefine looks with cuts and styles, single- or double-process color treatments. The upscale, Summerlin salon sets clients at ease with a modern design, complimentary coffee, tea, or water, and glass shelves full of exclusive PHYTO hair health products.
The stylists at Mitchell's Salon & Day Spa have beautified Cincinnati-area clients for the past 30 years. During that time, the staff has grown to more than 400 employees across five locations. They've also garnered several press mentions, including their most recent victory in The Knot's Best of Weddings 2013. These accolades are all possible because of the meticulous care that the salon pours into both its posh ambiance and soothing treatments. Stylists perfect 'dos with haircuts and smoothing keratin treatments, and aestheticians perform antioxidant facials, which make the skin more resilient against hazards such as environmental damage and cheek-pinching aunts.
From simple trims to elegant updos, there's little Yumi Kotani can't do with hair. Within the cozy, white-and-pink confines of Yoomz Hair Studio, she showcases her styling expertise by sculpting locks into spiral waves and smoothing frizzy hair with keratin treatments. Her carefully applied color and highlights brighten strands, and her natural-looking extensions gracefully elongate 'dos and eyelashes. To make appointments even more soothing, Yumi can incorporate add-ons such as moisturizing masques and exfoliating sea-salt scrubs.
India. China. Malaysia. Brazil. Peru. Mongolia. Tonsure Hair's inventory showcases human-hair extensions from countless locations. After gathering the strands, staff members transform them into extensions that can be clipped in, clamped on with microrings, or attached to an old broom that’s been feeling sorry for itself since the invention of vacuums. They even style some of the hair in accordance with trends—their shop features wavy, curly, straight, and ombre varieties.
When tresses need to be lengthened, shortened, or woven into an updo, they know they can rely on Brandon Arthur at Shear Enlightenment. At his comprehensive hair salon, Brandon also colors and highlights hair, which can be made smooth and frizz-fee through deep-conditioning treatments. His versatile portfolio boasts bright, imaginative hair colors, such as purple and candy-apple red, paired with classic cuts.
